    The 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR (American Club Racer) has become a
    major focal point of this – the final year of production for the current Dodge
    Viper.  When the car set records at both
    the famed Nürburgring in Germany and Laguna Seca here in the US, Dodge began by
    offering a handful of commemorative models followed up by the all-business 2010
    Viper ACR-X.  The 2010 Viper ACR is
    probably the most well publicized of this year’s Vipers but the one catch is
    that the American Club Racer was only offered as a coupe until the folks at
    Woodhouse Dodge made a call to the Chrysler big wigs.  Today, I had a chance to speak with Bill Pemberton,
    the Viper, SRT and Hurst Manager of Woodhouse Dodge and he took the time to
    give me more information on the Woodhouse Edition 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR convertible.

    Woodhouse Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge is located in Blair, Nebraska
    and even though this small Midwestern town has only around 8,000 people,
    Woodhouse has sold more Dodge Vipers than any other dealership in the
    world.  Since they began selling Vipers
    in 1999, Woodhouse has sold between 1200-1300 of Dodge’s Detroit-built
    supercars and when it was announced that the Viper production was coming to an
    end, Woodhouse Dodge had a special request.


    Woodhouse, being the top seller of the Dodge Viper and the 5th
    largest Chrysler dealership in the country, asked Chrysler to finish the
    year
    out by offering a special edition Viper just for the Blair Nebraska
    dealership
    based on the 2010 SRT10 ACR, but Woodhouse wanted a roadster rather than
    a
    coupe.  Chrysler agreed and was off to
    the races; producing 20 examples of the Woodhouse-exclusive 2010 Viper
    ACR
    Roadster.  Like the record-setting ACR
    coupes, the Woodhouse ACR Roadsters feature KW
    suspension,
    Stoptech rotors, light-weight wheels, and a revised fifth and sixth
    gears that
    helped the ACR coupe achieve those performance numbers but when it came
    to the
    ACR-specific body alterations, there were some issues.  The
    SRT team discovered that removing the
    roof impacted the aerodynamics of the car so much that the rear wing and
    front
    splitter had to be changed.  Chrysler
    then spent hours in the wind tunnel, making adjustments to the front and
    rear
    of the car to perfect the aerodynamics of the topless Woodhouse supercar
    and
    the end result a 2010 Dodge Viper ACR Roadster that offers similar
    performance
    to its hard-topped sibling. 

    The Woodhouse 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10
    ACR Roadster is the type of car that will end up a legend, joining the
    dealer-specific ranks of cars like the Yenko Camaro but even more rare.  Like the legendary high performance muscle
    cars, the 2010 ACR Roadster comes with a price increase but considering the
    performance abilities and the ultra-rare nature of the Woodhouse ACR, $107,310
    is a small price to pay for a piece of Supercar history.
